Since I have several posts today I am going to combine these two. My first card is for our Pixie Cottage Challenge which is stitching. It can be real or faux so you all can join in. My image is a rose by Artish found here. I used a decorative stitch around the striped dp and then two more decorative leaf stitches between the stripes. Faux stitching around the image. The rose is water colored and cut out with a Spellbinder scalloped oval and matted on another. A punched a strip with the Ms looped punch and added the embossed center behind the image. Three little flowers with jewel centers and satin bow finish it. I was shocked when I went to post, in this pic the pinks look awful together they look great in person can't explain it.
This Second Post is for Passionately Artistic
For Passionately Artistic we are continuing our Spring flower theme. I love this lily image which I water colored and cut out.The spots on the lily are stickled. I matted the on a black and orange for a bold look. Some stitching and a sentiment to finish it off.
